Job details:
UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
Uganda has continued to accommodate refugees fleeing from surrounding countries in the region. Inflows of refugees from the conflict-ridden areas of South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo continued as of August 2017. As the refugee population grows in Uganda, it is also critical to ensure host populations can adequately support the new influx. The Government of Uganda has made refugee-hosting areas a national priority through the Settlement Transformative Agenda (STA), which is aligned to the NDP II 2015/16 -2019/20.
Gender perspective in humanitarian action is vital to understanding the different needs of women, girls, boys and men in order to generate positive and sustainable outcomes. Under the direct supervision of the Deputy Representative and close working relationship with the Humanitarian and Co-ordination analyst, the Field Programme Management Specialist is responsible for managing the development, implementation, monitoring and reporting of the LEAP programme for the Country Office (CO), including overseeing‘ and guiding people and budget management for the LEAP programme team, building partnerships, resource mobilization and managing knowledge building efforts.
it is against this background that UN Women Uganda Country office seeks to hire a qualified and committed person for a position of Field Programme Management Specialist to manage the LEAP programme.
